The old town, also known as the Ancient Town of Hoi An is a living museum and is registered as one of the UNESCO Heritage Sites, attracting lots of tourists every year.
What makes it so special is that this little port town is in an incredible state of preservation. It offers some of the most densely-concentrated sights in Vietnam with its old streets bordered with ancient houses, assembly halls, pagodas, temples, ancient wells and tombs. The architecture of Hoi An is characterised by a harmonious blend of Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese influences. Some must-see attractions are Phung Hung Old House, Cantonese Assembly Hall, Tan Ky Old House, and The Japanese Covered Bridge. After the sunset, you can take a romantic lantern boat ride and check out the Hoi An night market for traditional goods and local delicacies. Remember to spare a one full day that is completely dedicated to the Ancient Town.
